I came across this wonderful place by accident while searching online for a place to stay while visiting my son who is studying abroad this semester and had a week off. The concept of "Agriturismo" was foreign to me but given the choice of staying in a hotel in a major city or in a countryside villa, my wife and I decided to roll the dice...and what a wonderful decision that turned out to be!
We arrived on a Saturday in late October and were one of only three families on holiday at the time. After arriving (and yes the GPS got us there with no problem), we were greeted by Massi who made us feel very welcome and we were always treated like family. Even though this is the low season, all of the amenities and events went on as planned.
His staff is very attentive and always looking to help in any way they can. My wife, son, and I really appreciated the hospitality and warmth of Massi and his family. They always made sure everything was OK and if they could help in any way.
The planned events were great. These included a welcoming social event upon arrival as well as pizza and pasta nights during the week. These were great opportunities to socialize with the other families as well as with Massi's family and staff. There is something fabulous to be said about having some great (homemade) wine with some fine foods and sharing conversations with these great people, all while enjoying the Tuscan evenings.
Also, if you look at a map of the Tuscany area, by staying here you are not far away from the major tourist areas. You are only a short drive away from Volterra and San Gimignano, and about an hour or less away from Sienna, Florence, and Pisa. Beautiful!
Departing was bitter-sweet but we are so happy to have discovered this gem in the Tuscan hills and are already thinking about revisiting again, this time with my whole family.
Thank you Massi!
